Giant driftwood on the beach at La Push, Washington (2010)

this made me feel really uneasy, the ocean is terrifying.

its like when cats bring home a dead bird and drop it at your feet except the ocean is like I HAVE BROUGHT YOU THIS ENORMOUS TREE FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL ENJOY

Miniature…Tuesday!  (Didn’t quite finish these gifs yesterday for Miniature Monday.)

Advice from Polonius rendered as a miniature artist’s book and stored in a mini Globe Theater.

Hamlet. Act I. Scene III. Polonius’ P’s & Q’s / by Wm. Shakespeare ; as presented by Poole Press, 2002 ; [designed and produced by Maryline P. Adams]  Berkeley, Calif. : Poole Press, c2002.

Stop by and see, it’s in the Smith Miniatures Collection  PR2807.A3  P6 2002.

This post was referenced and this book was shown in our Live Stream today.  Missed the Live Stream?  You can still watch the “archived” video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVceEwlIFJs

Photo of Loch Ness, captured by Apple Maps just a few weeks back. My feeling is that (a) this is conclusive proof of Nessie, and (b) she was probably surfacing to get a good wifi signal so she can download this story, available as an eBook at the end of the month.
Some people think this only shows the wake of a motorboat, which would make perfect sense if there was a motorboat anywhere in the photo, but there isn’t, so, it’s a plesiosaur, thank you, good night.

April 21, 1943: The “Surgeon’s Photograph” was published in the Daily Mail, purporting to be proof of the Loch Ness Monster’s existence.

In honor of Nessie, a host of sea monsters! And a little bit of Loch Ness thrown in.

It’s all turned in! Celebrating with a walk in the gloaming with these poor boogers who do not know I’m going back to work tomorrow.
